<quoted text>I think your outlook is a bit of a stretch. Here is a more realisitic possibility. Franklin and Fauria we know are gone! So are your pair of underperforming backup QBs and both senior cornerbacks. Plus the (B)ruins have several draft-eligible juniors and redshirt sophomores who could opt to go pro. Shaquelle Evans, Eric Kendricks, Jordan Zumwalt, Odighizuwa, Tevin McDonald and Cassius Marsh are among that group. Sophomore Xavier Su'a-Filo is also draft eligible. So what great nucleus did you say is coming back?
The entire OLine is coming back except for Baca the RG...Franklin, Fauria, and Baca are the only ones not returning...Evans, Fuller, Lucien, Hundley, Torian White, Xavier Sua Filo, Jake Brendal, and Simon Goines...another player that started several games is Steven Manfro who got injured, he was very effective on offense, jut not too great at Punt Returns.

On Defense, gone are Andrew Abbot, Aaron Hester and Sheldon Price, as well as Damien Holmes and Datone Jones...of those mentioned Aaron Hester and Sheldon Price hurt the team more than helped, with so many penalties (i.e. McDonald for USC). Replacing them will be two lights out corners by the name of Marcus Rios and Randall Goforth, whom any thought should have been the starters...replacing Holmes won't be hard either, Aaron Wallace, Nate Iese(monster) or Jeremy Castro. Anthony Barr and Zumwalt ain't going nowhere, and taking over for Jones there are several options, ever heard of Ellis McCarthy? Should anything happen with Brett Hundley we have two QBs that are pure passers in Neuheisel and Millweard...and also Devin Fuller can play QB, the kid is so athletic that he was switched to WR just so his talent wouldn't be wasted on the bench. I'm telling you our team is set for the future.

Recruiting rankings are way over rated I think that if a teams fills those areas in which they lack depth, that class is more successful than stacking with a bunch of 5-star class made of QBs and WR and RB...UCLA is stacked up in the OLine with the current class, we have 8 OLinemen, and anyone what has paid any attention the OLine had been our weakest area, hence 3 freshmen starting this year and one sophomore...BTW, right now UCLA has the #10 recruiting class.

USC is no secret that they have depth issues at the OLine, yet only have 2 OLinemen in this class and combined with the classes of 2012 and 2011 only have 11 OLinemen, and anyone that has played football or knows anything anything about football knows that in order to have an effective passing game you need a good OLine, and by the same token you need a good OLine to have a successful running game...so if I'm a USC fan, I would very scared of USC's fate.

I dont know where you are coming from with your alarmist proclamations. Other then our center Holmes (who was hurt half the year anyway) leaving, we are returning our entire starting line. The two recruits we have committed are the #14 and #17 best in the country at their positions, and we have the inside track on 5 star lineman Laremy Tunsil! As much as you are living off the one year high of the Mora hype, and despite our scholarships being slightly down each year, the Trojans STILL has the number 2 Ranked incoming class for 2013 (behind ND).

Nation, I wouldn't put too much emphasis on judging and who is doing the judging :/

We Bruins have more important things to worry about like holding down Baylor, the top offense in the country :(

If we can beat them, we get our 10th win of the season, avoid falling out of the Top 25, and not end the season on a 3 game loser streak. Otherwise we can kiss Coach Jimmy's coach of the Pacific 12 South award goodbye :(

Lifer, that is a good rule to forcibly adapt to and live by. It helps us over look that most of our incoming Bruin lads are 3 star players :)

Let's keep our Bruin secrets to ourselves, shall we ;)

I'm just giving my observations. If you offer to too mingled QBs you're wasting scholies with players that are never gonna get on the field. And when you have 10 scholies less to give out you have no margin for error, you're banking on these two OLine men to reach their potential, how often does that happen? As for your OLins it was average this year, you just got lucky your injuries were minimal. Hey, as long as you're happy that's all it matters, as for me? I'm ecstatic with our class talent is spread around at various positions, which is the mark of a great class, not top-heavy at any position.

***..."If you offer too many QBs you're wasting scholies..." not surprising however considering that USC has lied to their recruits stacking up on RBs during the PC era, at one time I think they had six 5-star RBs and they were all recruited with the over-used "come and compete" crap. I have no problem with USC continuing with that mentality...go ahead and get 2 QBs every year...go ahead and get 6 WRs every year the more the merrier, especially with the 10 scholie reductions.

Fellas, don't be too hard on me just because I am trying to rally the Bruin troops on a common cause. You and Nation have little room for criticism, you two fellow Bruins have almost tore each other’s throats out from time to time :/

Good thing I am around (with the occasional appearnace from Brewski) to help keep you two kids on the semi-straight and Bruin narrow ;)

Go Bruins! More hot tubs means more collective satisfaction!

Use any terminology, formula, or “era” talk you want, but USC consistently has the best recruiting classes year after year. And aside from all the haters and their cheating propaganda talk b.s., why do you think that is Robbie?

There's about a dozen schools that are practically self recruiting. Not being one of them, he can't comprehend it.

Same as all Trojans being part of the same family. Many people who aren't a part of it, can't get it or are just jealous they aren't part of the club.

But I do have to agree with him about us needing to concentrate on non-skilled positions.(His posts the last two days have actually been civil and discussion worthy.)

Fight On!

usc has always had the best "rankings" in recruiting classes for sure the past 12 yeaez, but how many titles? ONE you apparently don't read my comments about that or you don't understand the concept of recruiting...LET ME EXPLAIN IT AGAIN IN A FIRST GRADE LEVEL...you can have fifteen 5-star recruits, and that would ti e you the top class because each recruit is with a certain number of points based on whether he is a 2-star or a 5-star tecruit in terms of the most of the method system USC has the most 5-star recruits....THIS MEANS ABSOLUTELY NOTHING in the real world of college football if all of them play the same position, and/or you don't recruit for the positions being vacated by players leaving or to increase your depth in areas where you're thin at...you didn't play football did you?

As for why do tol recruits keep coming ti usx? I have a couple theories, none of which you will like.
1. USC has been known to let their athletes run wild getting arrested without any repercussions, the charges ALWAYS get dropped.
2. USC has been known/rumored to pay players very well...as Marc Tyler confirmed last year when he said "USC really breaks breas for the football players".
3. It's a thug haven as evidenced by 5 players arrested for rape the last decade. Why haven? Charges were dropped in each case, that's freaking awesome!!! If youor me got arrested for the same thing, do you think we would be as lucky? hell no!!
4. USC has been deported in the past of players not attending class yet getting passing grades.
5. Usc is a good school, and its a free pass for most of these players to get even a basket weaving degree from a good school.
6. Many of these players would not have a chance to get into UCLA because RIGHT NOW UCLA has the toughest admission standards for a public school in the nation, making ZERO EXCEPTIONS for student athletes, therefore missing out on some top talent that UCLA might otherwise get.
7. The USC players are lied to promising they will Ger a chance to compete, but end IP on the bench because the coacbes have predetermined who's gonna play and who is not like getting benched for the entire game for fumbling once...or lied to promising they will be the main stay on the offense and vet 5 carries per game - Silas Redd.

Truth hurts, don't it?? Don't ask next time.
